  • A museum access very convenient, ample parking, accessible to all, a content rate walkways. This museum deserves a long visit, provide a minimum 3 to 4 h, the better is to share this time in 2 with a lunch break. A scenography superb, innovative, a lot of information, the audioguide is advisable because it actually brings one more visit. A new perspective that allows better accept this terrible war. Comprehensive content, a presentation by very didactic themes accessible to the greatest number. Avoid in my opinion the days of school visits as the environment becomes noisy and not conducive to the necessary attention to this visit. The reminder of the values at that time which must engage our youth of today. If many participatory activities are offered for young people I think that for very young children, the visit may not exceed 1 h 30. The more than 13/14 years can accompany parents who will share a moment of Exchange hard. No cafeteria, but a resting area with some drinks and treats. In short a must-see Museum to see absolutely.

  • Superb introduction to World War 1. Starting in 1870, this museum does a wonderful job of introducing people to the background and effects of the war; both at home and at the fronts.
  • Visited the end of May 2015. Wonderful museum with a fabulous collection of items. Particularly enjoyed the items relating to everyday life in the trenches. The layout in the open space was well thought out and moved visitors easily through the exhibits. Glad I made the trip to Meaux!
  • Absolutely fascinating display with a wide range of knowledge and exhibits.
  • Museum exciting, skimpy and including the course, tremendously well illustrated and modern, can easily grasp the various aspects of the great war. Allow at least half a day for good enriched places! In addition, tariff-26 years is very accessible in comparison including D-day Normandy museums. Furthermore, the visit is marked by photos taken of current conflicts so allowing a judicious parallel between the context of the great war and current geopolitics.
